The Finish

THE FINISH

For months you prepare for the journey, a mere 26.2 miles.  All downhill at the start, at a drop of over 300 feet.   But the hills near the end define the race.  The hills of Newton dictate the training.  Training to replicate race conditions, the wise runner mixes long runs with interval repeats on grades to strengthen the legs for the steep climb and steel them for the rugged descent.

Run, diet, rest; everything works together.  Long range goals and short term plans evolve into a race day strategy, culminating in achievement, sastisfaction, and the realization of a dream.

We pay tribute to all who run the race!
